What are clear aligners?
Clear aligners are probably our most popular treatment, simply because they are so easy to use. They are an almost invisible appliance which is ideal for those who are in the public eye or who simply want to smile without worrying about their braces showing.
The clear aligner is similar to a mouthguard and is excellent at straightening crooked, gappy or even overlapping teeth. The aligners are clear, wafer thin and made of a transparent medical grade plastic. They are designed so that you wear each positioner for approximately two weeks. They gently and gradually move your teeth from their present position to the desired position.
Our chosen brand
Invisalign® is a very popular treatment at our Oldham practice. Invisalign® aligners are made of clear plastic and so they are virtually invisible. They are also removable so you can eat and drink normally and clean your teeth easily.
We find that patients love Invisalign® because the aligners are comfortable, removable, clear and easy to use. The treatment consists of a series of clear aligners, individually manufactured for your teeth with 3D computer imaging.
The aligners are changed every two weeks, and gradually move your teeth into the correct position. You can view your own virtual treatment plan to see in advance what your new straight smile will look like.
